Just as non-fans were speculating a Billboard Number 1 for the JYP Entertainment boy group, Stray Kids delivered. Fraud on Billboard or not, the eight-member boy group has just topped the US Billboard 200 chart as of March 29 for their latest mini-album titled ‘Oddinary’. Stray Kids have had a very successful journey with their latest album as well as their last few comebacks. The boy group's ‘Oddinary’ also debuted at Number 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart with the largest sales week of any album in 2022, selling103,000 copies so far.

It was reported that Stray Kids’ ‘Oddinary’ was on the verge of becoming the top-selling album from a fourth-gen group initially bested by their own 2021 album ‘Noeasy’. It also comes as no shocker for Stays (fans of Stray Kids) that the boys appeared at Number 1 in 57 regions across the world with ‘Oddinary’, barely a day after its release. The lead single ‘Maniac’ is currently at Number 1 on the K-Pop Radar music video weekly chart as of March 29.
